    I got free tickets the other year,
    had I paid I would have asked for my money back, we saw the whole show in an hour, twice,
    and its only 8 miles from me.

    Hi Ben

    I went a couple of years ago and it was expensive to get in and unless you are interested in bull x's, terriers, subaru's or camo clothing hiding the poachers under them I would stay at home mate.

    Best regards

    Last time I went was a couple of years ago and it's more like a market than a game fair. + knee deep in bull/greyhounds and gypo's.
    It's the only place iv been where you can buy a settee from one stall and purse nets from the one next door.

    if its still at the Towers place then the only time I tried to go I gave up, turned round and came home. Traffic was attrocious. Mind you I reckon you should go cos I reckon I can see you with a mastiff/greyhound cross and for sure you can get one there

    I think it would be a good place to write all the registration numbers down of the subaru's, it will be easier in the car park then when we bump into them at night.

    My advice would be to wait a week and go to the gamekeepers fair at Catton Hall next weekend. I have been every year for the past four years and it just gets better every year.

    Don't bother Ben went by thursday as they were setting up, couldn't understand the hold up coming through carlton but nearly pissed my pants when I saw all the bow top caravans and coloured horses pulling in. The wildfowling club I'm in used to stand every year it got that bad you couldn't give away free passes. More like a mini appleby come 4 day market mate. Having said that if you're brave enough to attend I'm about 6 mile away gis a ring and call in for a decent cuppa.

    I went two years ago. No gun stalls, a few tents with shooting attire.
    It`s nothing special and wouldn`t go again.

    That was a fair journey for you basil. Hope you didn't come up just for that.
